Jon Gruden is a very good football coach. But as good as he is, even Chucky can’t coach two teams at once. Yet how is it that he accept one job and still get paid by another team at the same time? Ask the University of Tennessee Volunteers and Cleveland Browns. This one is still just a rumor, but take a look at how this could work. Reportedly, Gruden has received an offer from Tennessee to coach the Volunteers college football team. No financial terms of the deal have been released, but Gruden is at least weighing his options before deciding whether or not he will return to ESPN as a commentator and analyst past this season. But while he could head to the college football ranks and join the Vols, could he still get paid by the Browns of the NFL at the same time?

  • ESPN: The team of Big Ego Jon and Nice Guy Tiriko almost puts me to sleep during the Monday Night Football games. I liked Jaws, but anyone that's added to the current team would be an improvement to what you have now. Gruden is very knowledgable regarding his football, but very, very boring to listen to. I don't want to learn all about the ins and outs of the art of Football. I want to enjoy the whole experience of viewing Monday Night Football, I want to laugh a bit, be amazed by facts about the players and the football world in general. I don't want to learn anything about being a Coach. I don't want to go through a test about the intricacies of running a football team. We know that Gruden is an Ego Hot Shot and a fine coach but seems to be constantly in need of impressing the world of his FootBall IQ., plus it seems that he takes so long to make whatever point that he's attempting to make....zzzz, oh, sorry. So remember, Howard Cossell always had 2 sidekicks..they were smart.........by George
